Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cassandra Maldonado
Welcome to Team Purdue! This will be my fourth year at the GT Academy, and I'm so excited to have the opportunity to share my love of reading and writing with these fabulous fifth graders.
I grew up in the Houston area and have degrees from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont and Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales in France. This will be my sixteenth year teaching and my twelfth year in Pearland ISD. My daughter, Camille, is a junior at the University of Houston studying business. We have two dogs - a long-haired Chihuahua named Toni and a brindle Boxer named Ginger. I love to take roadtrips, try new recipes and browse Half Price Books.
I hold Texas State Board of Educator Certificates in: Gifted and Talented (EC-6), English as a Second Language (EC-6) and Generalist (EC-6)
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
Please review your student's agenda daily. All homework and important reminders will be written in the agenda. I will also be using the Remind App to send out important reminders.
Graded papers go home in the green folders on Tuesday; please sign and return the conduct card in the folder the next day. Any papers below a 70 must be corrected and returned within 3 days.
